I went to high school with Brian. I remember when I would see him in the hallways between classes he always had a bright smile on his face. I moved away from Kimberley in 1988 and the last time I saw him was at grad. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Our condolences on the loss of Brian. We met him at prenatal classes – 1997 – I always enjoyed chatting with him and catching up at the ski hill after we moved to SK. We remember his warm smile and kind demeanor.
